Another Disastrous Financial Day

I have just finished the phone call from hell with one of the Debt collecting companies I am being chased by. After making all the necessary arrangements with them to pay out the debt ( thinking this would be enough to keep them off of my back ) they have decided they would like me to pay more and get rid of it quicker. I also would like rid of this burden round my neck, it's just not possible as I just don't have the wage to cover it, and no matter how much I tried to tell him this he would not believe me. This Gentleman (and I use the term very loosely indeed) lives in India has never had any dealings with me other than on the phone, has absolutely no idea of my lifestyle and yet thinks he can arrange my wages better than I can myself. He finished off by demanding my email address, but I told him that there was no way he was going to get the opportunity to harass me by email as well as by telephone and if he needed to get information to me or from me he could send me a letter. This did,nt suit him at all as he said it would be too slow a process, but I suggested politely of course that it was not my problem if they ( his firm) were in a different country to me. So now I'm sitting here fuming and had a real need to blog.

I have had the busiest Month and so it has taken me till now to add to my blog, I think the lack of any good news financially has also prevented me from blogging. In the last few weeks I have been squirrelling away the money for my trip to south Australia for a friends Daughters Wedding and I have kept my bills down but nothing has gone into my savings even my Christmas Club has ground to a halt, and next pay day Hubby needs me to help him with a large bill that needs to be paid for car repairs, so I think it's going to be April before anything gets done with my savings.

However it's not all doom and gloom as all the household bills have been met, the pantry is looking quite healthy, my Grandsons Birthday present for Saturday is all wrapped, and my fuel tank is on full, so barring any more phonecalls from India things are jogging along.


  1. Oh I'm so sorry, what stress. I hope that things improve soon.
